Citizenship Ceremony

For the past 12 years GlobalFest, in partnership with Citizenship and Immigration Canada, has held a citizenship ceremony onsite at Elliston Park during the OneWorld Festival and the Trico Homes International Fireworks Festival. The citizenship ceremony has become an important element of our programming, and this year we are celebrating by welcoming 100 individuals as new Canadians in 2019.

This year the ceremony will take place on Tuesday, August 20th on the OneWorld Stage at approximately 6:30 PM, the epicenter of multicultural activity and celebration at GlobalFest.
